Libya: Increased Airstrikes, Ground Troops, Contractors, Civilians Killed, Deadly DU Munitions – Can We Call This A War Yet?
April 12, 2011
The globalist coalition refers to it as ‘Kinetic Military Action’ , yet as more civilians are killed in NATO bombings, and with experts adamant that deadly Depleted Uranium weapons are being used by Western forces, the conflict in Libya looks a hell of a lot like the occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq all over again.
Gulf War veterans Melissa Sterry and Dr Doug Rokke tell Russia Today that judging from the destruction they have witnessed in reports out of Libya, it is extremely likely that depleted uranium weapons are being used.
Both are experts on the toxic munitions, having been part of clear up teams in Kuwait and Iraq in the early 1990s.
If their analysis is accurate, Libyan civilians, just like Iraqis, particularly in Falluja where thousands of DU rounds were used by US forces, face increased levels of cancers, leukemia and infant abnormalities.
Silent Killer: NATO denies depleted uranium bombs blasted Libya
While suggestions that US and British ground troops could soon be shipped to Libya are being bandied around by generals and government officials, The UK is also floating the idea of employing private military contractors inside Libya to overthrow the Gaddafi regime.
Despite the fact that there are still around 100,000 contractors operating in the quagmire of Iraq, and that their deployment has done nothing but enflame the conflict there, via countless scandals and abuses, the British government is seriously considering repeating the process in Libya.
There are also more reports today of yet another NATO strike from the air killing Libyan civilians.
The Al-Jamahiriya news agency in Libya reports that a number of civilians, including women and children, as well as several police, were killed in an attack on Kikla, 100 kilometers south of the capital Tripoli.
Last week NATO refused to apologise for killing some 15 civilians during an airstrike, despite acknowledging it was to blame for the deaths.
Despite these ongoing aerial bombardments, Britain and France have declared that they are unhappy with the level of NATO activity and have demanded that the bombing be stepped up.
Both the British and the French foreign ministers criticized NATO and called for other alliance countries to intensify their military operations.
If this isn’t a full scale war, What Exactly Is?
